Online Dating Mistakes You Should Avoid
Dating online can be stressful, especially if you’re lonely and desperate to find someone. For some, it’s a last resort but the best advice is to keep it simple, take a deep breath, and let the chips fall where they may.
While on your journey, you might make a few mistakes and hinder your progress. Here are some key things to avoid while dating online.
Put some thought into your first message: She looks cute and you like her profile. Good. Now don’t screw it up by messaging her “hi” or “how are you?” What interested you about her profile? Try picking something from that and using that as a conversation starter vs a simple message that will probably get ignored.
Spelling matters: It might not matter to you but it does matter to someone so be sure to proofread your profile and message.
Don’t harass them: If you message them once, don’t message again, and again, and again. If she doesn’t respond back, she’s not interested and she won’t be interested the second or third time either so don’t even bother.
Don’t post a picture with a woman: You’re online looking for a date so don’t post a picture with another chick especially if she’s attractive. She might be your sister or whatever but it just doesn’t look right. You want to appear single and available – not taken.
Don’t be gross: Don’t be that guy that asks for sex. Just don’t. Pay her a nice compliment and make sure it’s sincere and something honest vs. something saying she’s hot, got a nice ass etc. Women are looking for something serious, not a douchebag. So don’t be that guy.
